The Inquisitor Reviews
3.5 / 5A fairly good book at its core - interesting storyline and characters, easy to read. What kept this from being a really good, well-rounded book was the neglect of supporting details. The author just didn't do a very good job of backing up her story.One example of this is the whole "The Inquisitor" thing - which was the nickname of the serial killer. Near the beginning of the book, it's just said that when his killing spree began, this was a nickname given to him because of what he did to his victims, but the author never gave a good reason why. It was just that he tortured and mutilated them. Even when I finished the book I still had no idea why he had that nickname.There were a bunch of things like that throughout the book - the serial killer's childhood (a key motivator in his actions) was summed up in a sentence, Sean's sister's life was tip-toed around, what happened to the victims was glossed over. As I was reading, there were lot of points where I wanted more and the details just weren't there.Despite that, it was still a moderately good book. Adding in those details would have made it better, more cohesive. Without them, I just felt a little...unsatisfied.
This is the third Gayle Wilson novel that I've read and I've enjoyed all three. I liked the characters in this one and the story kept me turning the pages. However, I've read so many similar types of stories that this one doesn't really stand out.The who done it was a bit far-fetched. Even after the killer was revealed, I kept expecting to find out that the person stalking Jenna was not the real serial killer but a copy cat. The facts and locations of the crime just did not add up. Knowing who the killer was, it shouldn't have taken a TV interview to place her on his radar.Too many unanswered questions.Why did someone write "Help Me" on Jenna's car and who was it?Was Jenna really the target or was Sean?Were Sean and Jenna of different races?And why was the killer known as The Inquisitor? This novel also had similarities to "The Victim" also by Gayle Wilson. In both cases, the killer targeted the women after being made aware of them by the media and both played games with their victims. Both had men protecting them that they fell in love with. In both novels, the men get knocked out cold by the killer and the woman has to fight off the killer on their own. Still both enjoyable stories.
For the last several years ex-army ranger Sean Murphy has been hunting the man who killed his sister . When it seems likely his next target will be psychologist Jenna Kincaid, Sean attaches himself to her in an effort to get a shot at the serial killer known only as The Inquisitor. Yada, yada, yada - they beat the bad guy, fall in love, live happily ever after.I'm constantly on the lookout for new romantic suspense authors but this book had several flaws that just didn't work. One was the way Sean was hunting for the Inquisitor, which seemed to consist of doing not much but ineffectually following the guy to whatever city he was killing in. Another problem I had was that Sean was off doing this rather than taking care of his niece and nephew, his sister's two young kids. I also struggled with some of the things Sean and Jenna did to catch the killer, which hampered the police.The author did some things right and her writing style isn't horrible but with the wealth of books I have in my life, this is not someone I will read again.
Overall a good story, easy to read and fast-paced. However, I found a few of the characters lacking in depth. We’re told that the bad guy - “The Inquisitor” - does horrible things to his victims but this is only vaguely touched upon. We never learn much about him or what drives him. Jenna, one of the lead characters, seems to have had problems relating to men in her past, though we never learn why or if that is even true. The story seems to glide on the surface, without ever digging too deeply.A major distraction for me was the author’s use of the word obvious (or obviously). At times it would appear twice on one page, for five or six pages at a time. It became so distracting that I found myself counting how many times the word appeared. The plot is interesting. Sean, the lead male character, is well developed. This is one of those light reads that doesn’t require a lot of commitment for the reader.
This is the second book I've read by this author and I must say, its definitely going into my "favorites" shelf. The romance is a little weak but the suspense plot contained enough unpredictable twists and turns to keep me engrossed throughout the entire story. Remarkably, despite the current trend by many authors, GW hardly uses swear words in her stories (a point in her favor) yet her books outrank (in my opinion) several other authors who do so. Will definitely explore more of her other books.
Jenna Kincaid is a psychologist who catches the attention of The Inquisitor. Sean Murphy is the man determined to take him down. Romantic suspense with an uber creepy villain. A good solid story without a lot of extras. Fast paced and suspenseful with a good balance of romance and suspense. I didn't feel either element was neglected. I would have liked a little more character development but overall, I was satisfied.
Another serial killer, who done it, read it by the pool book. Not bad, but definitely predictable, complete with love interest between the latest target and the man who wants to take the serial killer down.
This was an exciting read about a serial killer and the man who is determined to track him down and kill him for torturing and murdering his little sister. When a local psychologist makes an off-the-cuff comment
Very good mystery. I wish that the ending was explained a little more thoroughly but overall an easy and enjoyable read.
